UPDATE...

...i posted about this project the other day but here are some new bits of information. i have submitted some work (above print) but will be unable to be at the exhibition launch night as we are flying out that day-everything happens when i am in another country!

See the Papergirl Manchester submissions before they are distributed, at their exhibition launch night, on Thursday 30th September from 7pm at the Soup Kitchen in the Northern Quarter of Mancland. Papergirl Manchester will showcase artists from Russia, Estonia, Canada, France, Ukraine, Italy, Spain, U.S.A, Sweden, Italy, Germany and the UK. So far the project has received almost 700 pieces of work that will be distributed. The exhibition will feature at least one piece by each artist. so why not join Papergirl and everyone for a drink, see the work and find out more - or visit here wecurate or here papergirlmanchester
finally...

...on Friday, i got to print the ringmaster and Brian. originally drawn in April sometime and it has been been waiting a month to get onto a screen since i potato-chopped it- here it is after two attempts to take a decent photo. i think i need digital camera lessons. this is the best i could do with the natural light from the patio type door things. in the end i went for five colours and left the red of his belt and hat band off/out. all 20 prints of the edition came out beautifully - good news for me who has never registered that many colours before! it was the biggest and best adrenalin rush ever - all in four hours. i recycled pots of colours that other people had left and they were quite good match's for what i had in mind.one will soon be on etsy and maybe a couple in the brick and mortar shops.
